    connecting a second patient monitor?

    Does anyone know if it even is possible to connect a second patient monitor application with the 3G software?

    We would like to work wit different rooms and move the manikin from one situation to the next (from ambulnace to ER and maybe OR), but we control the manikin from one pc, so different patient monitors would be nice...

     Anyone tried this before (i got an error message as soon as i tried to connect a second patient monitor)....

    ciao

    Sure, we do it here all the time.  The way we accomplish this is with a VGA splitter.  The pt monitor sends out vga, we split it three ways and send it to the various TVs.

    We have connected a second patient monitor on multiple occasions as well. Could you describe the error message a bit more?

     

    The VGA splitter idea will definitely work, but you will lose touchscreen functionality in doing so.
